EX­CIT­ING TIMES AHEAD

The Weekend Post - - Sport -

Q AStephen, you are off to a new job. Tell me about it and how it all came about?

I am re­ally ex­cited to get down to the Univer­sity of Wol­lon­gong to work through their med­i­cal and ex­er­cise sci­ence depart­ment. We will be run­ning a Mas­ters of strength and con­di­tion­ing and the grad­u­ate cer­tifi­cate of that is go­ing to be one of the only ones that are of­fered by dis­tance and on­line. Those stu­dents will then tran­si­tion into a Mas­ters, which will be blended. Univer­sity of Wol­lon­gong have been re­ally up­front about want­ing to be very com­pet­i­tive in the mar­ket. I am look­ing for­ward to get­ting stuck in, de­sign­ing the pro­gram and get­ting it run­ning, cre­at­ing in­dus­try links and see­ing what re­sponse we get. The course is re­ally at­trac­tive to me. It bridges fit­ness cer­tifi­cates to peo­ple who want to go to Univer­sity. It of­fers peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity to do that while they are still work­ing. It also lends it­self to strength and con­di­tion­ing coaches who are also work­ing full-time in the field that up­skill their qual­i­fi­ca­tions. I am look­ing for­ward to start­ing my next chap­ter.
